Nice piece on IUP author Jo Paoletti's book 'Sex and Unisex' in The Atlantic http://ht.ly/LDLIE
Gender-neutral clothing is back in vogue, but the craze in many ways has mirrored broader social changes throughout the 20th century.

My interview with The World on PRI about Selfridges' move into unisex fashion.
The British Department Store Selfridges has announced that they're doing away with gendered clothing. They will get rid of men's and women's department and make their clothing gender-neutral.

"Who cares if hair is long or short or sprayed or partly grayed? We know that hair ain't where it's at." (Frank Zappa, 1968)  It's hard to believe that it was such a big deal. I've blogged about it a couple of times while writing my forthcoming book on the 60s and 70s.

This is what I have so far; I am looking for works on 70s fashion, unisex fashion and gender issues in the 1970s from either a social history or cultural history angle.

Fall
That moment when October winds ruffle the trees
and the leaves drift and tumble toward the ground.
My heart cries out, "Oh, no! Not the yellow ones!"
Not yet.
